The hostel may not be easy to locate if the traveller did not follow the directions given. Once you are familiar with the surroundings, you may not want to try other hostels when you visit Taipei. This hostel is within walking distance to the Taipei train station, bus station and located between Taipei and Zhongshan Metro stations. There are many...

We stayed 8 nights in a double room. The room was cleaned every day incl. towel exchange. Staff was really friendly and helpful! Location was perfect for us to do day trips within the city and surrounding areas i.e. Wulai, Tamsui, elephant hill etc.. There are a few japanese ramen places and very good dumpling places just around the corner!...

Actually this appears more like a budget hotel accommodation than a hostel. Most ppl appear to be staying here cos of the value for money, quality environment that you get... hard to make frds here with the staff and customers as everyone keeps to himself and there are no activities organised. But still, many pluses... We stayed in the double...

Located safe place, and close to Taipei main station. All young staffs are obviously friendly and kind. If I could submit a disadvantage, it was hard to find the entrance door.
